Marie | Snake Plant | Sansevieria

Snake Plants are an easy to care for, brilliant style statement.  Pop them in a nice pot and they’ll grow happily in a sunny spot and is a fantastic air cleaner – making her a great desk buddy.   These ones are between 40-50cm.

Care Advice

Snake Plant | Sansevieria Houseplant

Native to Western Africa the Snake Plant likes it warm and sunny without too much water, making her very easy to look after.     Snake plants are also very rewarding, you can take their leaves and pop them in water.  They begin to grow roots after a few weeks and you can plant them to make baby snake plants!  That way you can increase your collection or gift them to friends – she really is the perfect plant.        

She needs good drainage and does not like to be sat in water.  Let the plant dry out between waterings and water less in winter.  Always err on the side of caution as overwatering is what upsets this plant the most.  Also, when watering, avoid getting the leaves wet so no need for the spray here!   

 In terms of light, she’s pretty easy going – but happiest with indirect, bright sunlight.   

All of the houseplants in my shop are named after an inspiring woman. This time, it’s Marie Curie, an incredible scientist whose research into the treatment of cancer with radiation led her to win 2 Nobel prizes for Science and saved countless lives.     

Snake Plants are mildly toxic to pets (would cause a bit of an upset tummy if ingested) so keep away from any inquisitive fluffy family members.

Bought a beautiful pinstripe calathea that arrived super quickly and in great condition. There was also a hand written note and a care guide which was a very nice personal touch.

I ordered a houseplant from Iris & Co in the last few weeks and was very happy to receive a healthy, beautiful plant within a week of ordering. Gemma was quick to respond and very helpful. I love the info cards included with purchase that include helpful tips on how to care for each plant! Will definitely order again.

I ordered a house plant and pot from Gemma and am really pleased with it so far.  The website pot recommendation was really helpful and also the plant care tips that were emailed to me separately. Gemma delivered the plants herself and the presentation was beautiful. Would really recommend for any gifts (to other or self!).

Bought a “phoebe” plant as I can’t seem to keep houseplants alive! Delivery was amazing (plant still seemed happy!) and I even had a little freebie which I also love. Phoebe has settled in nicely in her new pot (also from Iris & Co, beautiful). Couldn’t ask for more and would definitely recommend!
